Wolfhounds bring authenticity, passion to Fort Fest


BY STEPHANIE GROVES
DHI Media Staff Writer

FORT JENNINGS The


C Company, 1st Battalion, 27th
Infantry Regiment Wolfhounds are a
group of 25 dedicated and passionate men and women who re-enact
Vietnam War-era scenarios at outdoor events and their performance
at Fort Fest Saturday evening was
highly emotional and moving for
every member of the audience.
Member Terry Giffin said the
group of two to three guys began
Civil War and World War II reenactments 10 years ago.
Thats when Papa (Craig
Defeyer), our platoon leader, came
to us and asked when we were going
to do Vietnam War events, Giffin
said. All agreed, it was time.
As the number of members
grew members are from Ohio,
Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin
they began performing for
parades and Vietnam War veterans
events. Giffin said it was two years
ago when the company performed at
a campground in Kokomo, Indiana,
where members ran a patrol scenario through the campground and
they looked as if they had just come
back out of a field from patrol.
The veterans ate it up,Giffin
said. We were dubbed The Last
Patrol. We were not invited back,
we were told we would be back.
Giffin said they have Vietnam
vets as part of the group and they
help do it right make the scenarios look and feel authentic to
what it was like during the conflict.

Todays Highlight in
History:
On August 18, 1914,
President Woodrow Wilson
issued his Proclamation of

States must be neutral in fact
as well as in name during
these days that are to try mens
souls.
On this date:
In 1587, Virginia Dare

BRIEFS

Toledo officials
stress water
safe to drink
TOLEDO (AP) Toledo
officials are stressing that the
citys water is safe to drink as
they continue to monitor for
the toxin produced by Lake
Erie algae blooms that shut
down services two weeks ago
to about 400,000 people.
Officials say tests on
untreated water coming into
a city plant are showing a
strong presence of the toxin
microcystin, but the treated
water is safe.
Customers might notice a
film on tap water in cups
or containers. Officials
say that is not harmful and
comes from alum in treating the water to remove the
toxin. Customers also might
notice more of a chlorine odor
because chlorine also was
slightly increased to treat the
water.
The city posted the information Saturday on its
Facebook page.

Govt seeks
repayment
over living
dead man

FINDLAY (AP) The


government wants to recoup
benefits paid to relatives of an
Ohio man who was declared
legally dead as he stood in
court providing ample evidence of his continued existence.
Donald Miller Jr. disappeared in the 1980s, and a
death ruling in 1994 allowed
his family to get the benefits.
When the 62-year-old Miller
resurfaced, saying hed been
living elsewhere, the government apparently took notice.
The Courier in Findlay
reports letters shared by
Millers ex-wife show the
Social Security Administration
wants his two daughters to
return over $47,000 to repay
benefits plus interest.
The newspaper says
Millers attorney wouldnt
return calls.

cluster suit

TOLEDO (AP) The

among dozens sickened in a

The groups lawsuit against
Whirlpool Corp. links the
companys washing machine
factory in the northern Ohio
city of Clyde to the cancer
cases.
Benton Harbor, Michiganbased Whirlpool says the allegations are baseless and not
based on scientific or medical
fact.
The lawsuit says a chemical compound suspected of
causing cancer came from the
Whirlpool plant near where 35
children have been diagnosed
with cancer and three have
died since the mid-1990s.

Pa. woman fights Ohio rescue over dog


COLUMBUS
(AP)
A
Pennsylvania womans fight to get her
dog back from a central Ohio rescue
group has turned into a full-fledged
legal battle and Internet war.
Veronica Covatch, 53, of
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, has
been trying to get her 5-year-old sheltie back since April, when she said the
dog escaped from her friends back
yard in Columbus, Ohio.
Covatch said her dog, Piper, was
picked up by Franklin County Animal
Control and then turned over to Central
Ohio Sheltie Rescue in Columbus
in April, even though Covatch said
a microchip in her dog would have
shown she was the owner.
The sheltie rescue group and its
director, Penny Sanderbeck, argue that
the dog rightfully belongs to them and
is accepting applications from anyone
interested in adopting her.
Covatch filed a complaint against
Sanderbeck and the rescue group last
month in Franklin County Municipal
Court. This week, Judge David Tyack
ordered Piper returned to Covatch as

the case works its way through the


court, but Sanderbeck was able to keep
the dog after posting a $10,000 bond,
according to The Dispatch.
Covatch said shes not giving up
on Piper, a champion show dog worth
tens of thousands of dollars.
Shes a companion, shes a lap
dog, and my bed buddy above everything else, Covatch told WCMH-TV.
I love her to death. I wouldnt be
fighting to get her back if I didnt.
Sanderbeck has declined to comment on the case.
Her attorney, John Bell, said once
the dog comes out of the shelter to the
rescue, its the rescues dog and thats
the end of it.
In a letter Bell wrote and posted
on the rescue groups website in May,
he said theres no concrete proof that
Covatch is Pipers owner, saying the
only evidence that was submitted consisted of pedigree documents that
could pertain to hundreds if not thousands of dogs, and vet records and
photos from an alleged co-owner.
It was unclear whether he was

Wedding moved
for father at
Alzheimers home

TOLEDO (AP) A Michigan woman who had been


planning a traditional wedding at her church instead took
the ceremony to an Ohio nursing home so her father could
walk her down the aisle.
Miriam and Mark Davis, of Canton, Michigan, married
Saturday at the Foundation Park Alzheimers Care Center
in Toledo.
A beaming Bernard Reeves, 64, gave his daughter away
as many of the 30-some wedding guests struggled to hold
back tears.
Reeves is in the advanced stages of Alzheimers disease.
My dad has been my hero my entire life and I know
that if he was well, he would be at my wedding front and
center, Miriam Davis, 31, said before the ceremony. And
I thought, Why not move it there and it would be more of
a special event.
Davis and her husband had been planning to marry at
their church in Ypsilanti, Michigan, when she realized
about a month ago that her father just had to be at her wedding. She worried that if he was brought to a ceremony
away from his nursing home, he might wander off.
She said the nursing home was enthusiastic about hosting the ceremony.
Davis said her father still knows who she is but rarely
talks and cant care for himself.
Reeves, a Vietnam War veteran, was diagnosed with
Alzheimers in 2006 and moved to the Toledo nursing
home two years ago when his symptoms worsened.
Reeves also was a police chaplain for a time. Most
recently, he was a pastor at the New Creation Church in
Detroit.
Marie Reeves, Davis mother and Bernard Reeves wife,
said even though her husband may not have understood
everything that was going on Saturday, his simple presence
meant so much.

Network, based in Utah, attempted
to intervene in the case but said that
Sanderbeck was uncooperative.
A coordinator for the group told
WCMH-TV that Sanderbeck and her
group have been removed from the
network, saying they dont support
this kind of behavior.
Meanwhile Covatch has started an
Internet fundraising campaign to help
her pay for the legal fight to get
Piper back. Through Sunday, the page
had garnered more than $4,100 of its
$8,000 goal.
A court date has not yet been set in
the case.

100-year-old church installs gay pastor


CANTON (AP) An
Ohio church marking its
100th anniversary this year
on Sunday installed its first
openly gay pastor who came
out two years ago and says
he wants everyone in the
community to know that its
OK to be who they are.
The
Congregational
United Church of Christ
in Plain Township, north
of Canton, made the Rev.
Dennis Coy its pastor in
a formal ceremony two
months after he was unanimously elected.
Coy said that part of the
ceremony included the congregation forming a circle
around him and singing as
a demonstration of love and
support.
It was a very touching
and unexpected moment,
he said shortly after the ceremony. The forward thinking and progressive nature
of this congregation thats
been around 100 years, to
then say, We want to call
as our new pastor an openly
gay man, really speaks to
them extending that welcome into the community.
Coy, 35, is a former
police officer and drugenforcement agent. He
undertook seminary studies
at the University of London
and the United Church of
Christ lay ministry program.
Coy now works full-time

referring to Covatch, and said six


people claiming to be Pipers owner
have contacted the rescue.
Bell said the shelter has been inundated with Internet posts, letters, and
emails, and even whole new websites
about Piper.
Instead of attempting to resolve
these competing claims to the ownership or possession of Piper in a civilized and orderly manner, a campaign
of Internet bullying and threats was
started, and several criminal acts were
committed against Ms. Sanderbeck,
including a burglary of her home,
Bell wrote.
Bell did not release specifics of
the alleged burglary but said it was
directly related to Piper.
He said Piper would not be placed
in any home, including Covatchs,
until those responsible for the burglary and the Internet bullying have at
least been identified.
Covatchs Columbus attorney,
Lloyd Cohen, dismissed the rescue groups claims of being Pipers
rightful owner, and said a microchip

investigating money laundering for a regional bank.


Coy said that coming out
publicly in 2012 was a difficult decision for him that
included ending his 10-year
marriage to his wife.
He said he was inspired
to come out after attending
a church event led by an
openly gay United Church
of Christ pastor.
I thought, if this man
can lead in a mainline
Protestant denomination,
why cant I? he told The
Repository,
(http://bit.
ly/1rgN3lV). My theology
as a pastor is, above all else,
we love everyone. We want

to be a place where people


can feel it. Its about
showing others that its OK
to be who you are.
Coy said he believes
scriptures used to condemn
homosexuality have been
grossly misinterpreted.
As Christians, we follow Christ, he said.
Nowhere does Christ say
anything about the subject.
But he does tell us to love
everyone.

Turtles tops weak debut


for Expendables 3
By JAKE COYLE
AP Film Writer
NEW YORK Moviegoers shelled
out for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
while Sylvester Stallones action
ensemble The Expendables 3 was
easily out-gunned in its weekend debut.
Paramount Pictures rebooted reptiles took in $28.4 million in the films
second weekend, according to studio
estimates Sunday. That far surpassed the
limp $16.2 million earned by Stallones
gang of aged but buff warriors.
The paltry, fourth-place total for The
Expendables 3 is well below previous
debuts in the Lionsgate (NYSE:LGF)
franchise. The last two Expendables
opened with $34.8 million (in August
2010) and $28.6 million (in August
2012). The third film was the first
to be rated PG-13 in the previously
R-rated series, which potentially signaled watered-down explosiveness to
an audience that was largely over 25,
anyway.
Expendables 3, which features
a sprawling cast of Stallone, Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Mel
Gibson and others, also leaked online

before its release, potentially damaging


its impact in theaters.
Instead, Marvels The Guardians of
the Galaxy came in second with $24.7
million, bringing its three-week cumulative total to $222 million for distributor Walt Disney. (NYSE:DCQ) Along
with the Nickelodeon Movies-produced
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the
cosmic romp starring Chris Pratt has
helped restore some strength to the summer box office. Sequels are already in
the works for both films.
After box-office returns well off the
pace of last summer, Hollywood has
made a slight comeback in August,
typically a dumping ground for studio
leftovers. The summer overall is still
running at a 15 percent deficit from last
years record-breaking season, but the
gap had once been above 20 percent.
August is up 14 percent on last year.
Its called the dog days of August
for a reason, said Paul Dergarabedian,
senior media analyst for box-office
tracker Rentrak, but thankfully in a
summer with a lot of ups and downs,
this has been a really good August.
A busy weekend slate also helped.
Opening in third place was the 20th

Century Fox buddy comedy Lets


Be Cops, starring Jake Johnson and
Damon Wayons Jr. It took in $17.7
million.
Also debuting was the Lois Lowry
adaption The Giver, a dystopian
young-adult tale starring Jeff Bridges
and Meryl Streep. The Weinstein Co.
release opened with an estimated $12.8
million.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday
through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian
theaters, according to Rentrak. Where
available, latest international numbers
are also included. Final domestic figures will be released on today.
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
$28.4 million.
2. Guardians of the Galaxy, $24.7
million.
3. Lets Be Cops, $17.7 million.
4. The Expendables 3, $16.2 million.
5. The Giver, $12.8 million.
6. Into the Storm, $7.7 million.
7. Hundred-Foot Journey, $7.1
million.
8. Lucy, $5.3 million.
9. Step Up All In, $2.7 million.
10. Boyhood, $2.1 million.

Hip hop, graffiti in Lebanon tag a nations woes


BY SAM KIMBALL
Associated Press

BEIRUT In a red-lit bar in Beirut, Nasser Shorbaji and


Marwan Alameh try not to knock the microphones over while
laughing during the broadcast of their weekly radio show.
Moments later, they turn more somber as they introduce
a segment on Palestinian hip hop, discussing the most recent
outbreak of war on Gaza. Heads nod in the packed bar to the
rhymes of Sati, a Palestinian rapper.
The duo are among a host of Lebanese graffiti artists and
rappers trying to re-engage disaffected youth in a debate about
the countrys latest wave of political turmoil and the woes of
the greater Middle East.
People dont want to be preached to. So were just doing
a fun thing in order to put out serious issues, Alameh said.
One example is Shorbajis latest music video to his song
O.P.P, which takes its title from the 1991 hit by U.S. hip
hop group Naughty By Nature. Shorbajis version focuses on
a suicide bomber working as a bank clerk who thinks through

whether or not to carry out an attack on his workplace.


Another is rapper and graffiti artist Omar Kabbani, 31, who
runs Ashekman, a rap, graffiti and urban clothing outfit with
his brother Mohamed.
We consider ourselves to be the eight oclock news when
we go out to do graffiti, Kabbani said. They say I was born
with a microphone and my twin brother with a spray can.
While Kabbani is wary of calling Ashekmans work political, the groups music and street art does not avoid Lebanese
societys many conflicts. Ashekmans Grendizer, a giant
war robot from anime cartoons the group uses in its designs,
is often used by Ashekman to mock what they see as mindless obedience to religious and political factions and their
militias in Lebanons polarized political landscape.
Many people that were warlords in Lebanon are now ruling the country, he says, referring to leaders in Lebanons
15-year civil war, which ended in 1990, who have gone on to
prominent political careers.
In its song Deyman Ijebeh, Arabic for Always Positive,
Ashekman makes fun of what they see as attempts by
Lebanese to appear unperturbed by their countrys instability.
They (leaders) are fighting over who will rule the Banana
Republic, Ashekman raps.

Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ricker

Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ricker will observe 65 years of


marriage on Aug. 20.
To celebrate, a Mass of Thanksgiving and dinner with
family and friends will be held on Aug. 23.
Richard and former Norene Rahrig were united in marriage on Aug. 20, 1949, at St. Joseph Catholic Church,
Fort Jennings, the Rev. Gilbert Rahrig, cousin of the
bride, officiating.
They are the parents of Jack (Tonda) Ricker and Dale
(Marilyn) Ricker of Fort Jennings, Carol (Neal) Barnard
of Perrysburg, Don (Maria) Ricker of Elida, Sue (John)
Gerdeman of Kalida, Lisa (Larry) Beining of Ottoville,
Kevin (Brenda) Ricker of Fort Jennings and Brian (Julia)
Ricker of Findlay. They also have 25 grandchildren and
35 great-grandchildren.
Richard is a farmer and retired Putnam County commissioner. Norene is a homemaker.

Wilder memoir to give


gritty view of prairie life
By KEVIN BURBACH
Associated Press

PIERRE, S.D. Laura


Ingalls Wilder penned one of
the most beloved childrens
series of the 20th century, but
her forthcoming autobiography will show devoted Little
House on the Prairie fans a
more realistic, grittier view of
frontier living.
Pioneer
Girl:
The
Annotated Autobiography
Wilders unedited draft
that was written for an
adult audience and eventually served as the foundation
for the popular series is
slated to be released by the
South Dakota State Historical
Society Press nationwide this
fall. The not-safe-for-children
tales include stark scenes of
domestic abuse, love triangles
gone awry and a man who lit
himself on fire while drunk
off whiskey.
Wilder and her daughter
Rose Wilder Lane, herself a
well-known author, tried and
failed to get an edited version
of the autobiography published throughout the early
1930s. The original rough
draft has been preserved
at the Laura Ingalls Wilder
Historic Home and Museum
in Mansfield, Missouri, for
decades but hadnt been published.
The childrens series never
presented a romanticized version of life on the prairie
in Little House in the Big
Woods, Laura and her sister
Mary gleefully help dissect
the family pig before bouncing its inflated bladder back
and forth in the yard. But
the series also left out or fictionalized scenes that Wilder
deemed unsuitable for kids,
including much of the time
the family spent in Burr Oak,
Iowa, and Walnut Grove,
Minnesota, according to
Pamela Smith Hill, a Wilder
biographer and the lead editor

on the autobiography.
So you can read Pioneer
Girl as nonfiction rather
than fiction and get a better
feeling of how the historical
Ingalls family really lived,
what their relationships were
and how they experienced the
American West, she said.
Wilder details a scene
from her childhood in Burr
Oak, in which a neighbor of
the Ingalls pours kerosene
throughout his bedroom,
sets it on fire and proceeds
to drunkenly drag his wife
around by her hair before
Wilders father Pa in the
childrens books intervenes.
Scenes like that make
Wilders memoir sound like
its filled with scandal and
mature themes, which isnt
exactly true either, according
to Amy Lauters, an associate
professor of mass media at
Minnesota State UniversityMankato.
Its just that that first version was blunt, it was honest.
It was full of the everyday
sorts of things that we dont
care to think about when we
think about history, said
Lauters, who has read the
original manuscript and also
is writing a book on Rose
Wilder Lane. And its certainly not the fantasized version we saw on Little House
on the Prairie the television
show.
Wilders story will likely do well in South Dakota,
since the author moved to De
Smet in the late 1870s with
her family, eventually meeting her future husband there.
For fans, the autobiography is chance to see from
where Wilder drew her inspiration, said Sandra Hume,
a Wilder aficionado who
published an internationally
distributed newsletter for 10
years and now helps manage
Laurapalooza, a conference
dedicated to all things Wilder.

BROOKLYN,
Mich.
Jeff Gordon raced to his
third NASCAR Sprint Cup
victory of the year, holding
off Kevin Harvick on Sunday
for his first win at Michigan
International Speedway since
2001.
Gordon broke the track
qualifying record Friday
when he took the pole at
206.558 mph. He followed
that up with his third Cup victory at MIS.
After a series of cautions,
Gordon came off the final
restart well and led with 16
laps remaining. He fought off
a challenge from Joey Logano
and maintained a comfortable
margin over Harvick, winning the 400-mile race by
1.4 seconds in his No. 24
Chevrolet.
Harvick was second, fol-

those two were clearly the

There were eight cautions, including a fairly early

eighth, remaining winless at

Johnson overcame some

WASHINGTON Whole

Griffin was anointed the

week after he was drafted
in 2012. Hes missed games

Stewart also takes NRA Sprint Invaders Title

ELIDA Limaland
Motorsports Park concluded its
17th season Friday night under
the ownership and operation of
the University of Northwestern
Ohio by crowning track champions in all three racing divisions and the touring K &
L Ready Mix NRA Sprint
Invaders.
Ideal weather conditions
greeted another huge crowd at
the pristine facility on Dutch
Hollow Road and the racing
action did not disappoint.
The evenings features
began with the 25-lap K & L
Ready Mix NRA season final.
Pole starter Hud Horton led the
20-car field to green and proceeded to set the pace through
the first half of the feature.
Horton chose the cushion to
make his way around with
Dustin Stroup and points leader J.R. Stewart in tow. Also,
Jared Horstman was making an
impressive charge through the
field from his outside row-six
starting position.
At the event midpoint,
Stroup produced a superb
inside pass of Horton heading
down the backstretch and took
over race leadership. It was a
lead he would not surrender,
although Horstman continued to push towards the front.
Stroup, of Fremont, held on
for a first ever triumph at the
track with Horstman and visiting Michigan veteran Dustin
Daggett rounding out the podium finishers.
J.R. Stewart recorded an
eighth-place result that handed
him a fifth track championship
and the NRA title.
This is a great feeling,
said the normally reserved
Stewart. I cant thank (car

Sherman opened from the
third row and was expected
to choose a safe driving strategy to protect his numerical
advantage and lock down the
championship.
Lines, of Marion, Indiana,
ran his usual up-against-the
wall style with Babcock doing
all he could to rattle the leader
and possibly slip around for
the lead. He was unable to do
so as Lines survived a series
of late race cautions to capture his second feature win in
two attempts at the track this
season.
Afterward Lines said,
keeping the right amount of
heat in the tires was important
as I knew (Jeff) Babcock was
right on my tail and I just held
him off.
Sherman posted a solid
fourth-place result and sealed
the 2014 Modified championship, the record sixth of his

BALLOT BREAKDOWN: FSU No. 1 in AP preseason poll


By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press
The Associated Press preseason
Top 25 is out. Take a look at how
the ballots break down and find out
what to watch for when the college
football season begins this month:
___
NOLES
N AT I O N
DOMINATION
Finish No. 1. Start No. 1. Even
Bobby Bowdens best Florida State
teams never did that.
Jimbo Fishers Seminoles will.
Jameis Winston and the defending
national champions are preseason
No. 1 for the sixth time.
In two of the previous five seasons Florida State started No. 1,
the Noles went on to finish No.
1, including a wire-to-wire title in
1999. But they never did start the
following year top-ranked.
OK, the 2000 Seminoles were
preseason No. 2 and after Bowden,
the Hall-of-Fame coach whom
Fisher replaced, won his first national championship in 1993, Florida
State started 1995 ranked No. 3.
Fishers Seminoles have a long

way to go to compare to Florida


States unprecedented run of national
championship contention, a string of
14 straight seasons during which the
Noles finished the season ranked in
the top five of the AP rankings.
Still, make no mistake: Florida
State 2.0 is built to last.
Were the second-winningest
team in the country the last four
years, the winningest team the last
two years and have had the most
NFL players, Fisher said. Weve
recruited well, too. Recruited a lot
of great young players weve been
able to mentor and develop as we
go, so were very comfortable with
the guys who are replacing the guys
that left.
The Seminoles were an overwhelming choice as No. 1, receiving
57 out of 60 first-place votes from
the media panel. No. 2 Alabama,
No. 2 Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma
got one first-place vote each.
Ohio State is No. 5 and Auburn,
which lost the final BCS national championship game to the
Seminoles 34-31, is No. 6.
Last season was a good reminder

that preseason rankings can look


pretty silly by the end of the season.
Four teams that finished in final top
10 last season (No. 2 Auburn, No. 3
Michigan State, No. 5 Missouri and
No. 10 UCF) were unranked to start
the season. Throw in No. 13 Baylor,
No. 20 Arizona State and No. 23
Duke, and seven of the teams that
either won or played for the championship in the six conferences with
BCS automatic-qualifying status
began 2013 unranked.
The Bowl Championship Series
is gone now, replaced by the College
Football Playoff. The top four teams
will be placed into national semifinals to be played on New Years Day
and advance to the championship
game about a week and half later.
Expect surprises, though coming
up with a scenario in which Florida
State is not part of college footballs
first final four is difficult.
Winston will make a run at his
second Heisman behind an offensive line that returns four starters.
Theres turnover at receiver and running back but still plenty left of 4and 5-star talent left behind.

Same goes on defense, where


sophomore safety Jalen Ramsey and
defensive end Mario Edwards step
into leadership roles.
Florida State is the hunted again.
Fisher wants them to still act like
hunters.
We better have that attitude. Its
got to be your attitude every year,
added Fisher, starting his fifth season as Florida State coach. We call
it an attitude of domination. You can
never be satisfied.
Florida State starts its season with
a rebuilding Oklahoma State team at
AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas,
which, coincidentally, is also the site
of the first College Football Playoff
national championship game.
CONFERENCE CALL
Do not think for a second that the end
of the Southeastern Conferences streak
of national championships means the
SEC is slipping.
The SEC begins the 2014 season
with eight ranked teams, matching its
own record for most teams from one conference in the preseason poll, set in 2011.
After Alabama and Auburn, South
Carolina is No. 9, Georgia is 12, LSU is
13, Mississippi is 18, Texas A&M is 21
and Missouri is 24.

The Pac-12, which gave the SEC a


good run as the nations best conference
last year, has six ranked teams No. 7
UCLA, No. 11 Stanford, No. 15 Southern
California, No. 19 Arizona State and No.
25 Washington the most ever for the
league in the preseason.
FROM THE ARCHIVES
No. 7 UCLA has its best preseason
ranking since 1998, when the Bruins
were also seventh.
No. 8 Michigan State has its best
preseason ranking since 1967, when the
Spartans were No. 3.
No. 10 Baylor is ranked in the preseason for the first time since 1986 and
has its best preseason rankings since
1957, when the Bears were No. 7.
No. 25 Washington, with new
coach Chris Petersen, formerly of Boise
State, is making its first preseason
appearance since 2003.
START TO FINISH
Since the AP preseason poll debuted
in 1950, Florida State in 99 and Southern
California in 2004 are the only teams to
start and end the season No. 1 in the AP
poll. Eight other preseason No. 1s have
also won the national championship.
STREAKS
Ohio State has been ranked in
26 straight preseason polls, the nations
longest current streak.
Alabama has been ranked in the
top five in six straight preseason polls,
the nations longest current streak.

-Know
the
dose of your pills.
Acetaminophen pills
available over the
counter may contain
325, 500 or 650 mg
of the drug. On my
website, AskDoctorK.
com, Ive put a table
showing how often
and how much you
can safely take of each
dose.
-Stick
to
recommended doses.
Dont be tempted to
take more than the
recommended dose.
Take only as much
as you need. Try not
to exceed 3,000 mg a
day if possible.
-- Go easy on the
alcohol.
Drinking
alcohol causes the
liver to convert more
of the acetaminophen
you take into toxic
byproducts.
-- Know if your
medications interact.
Ask your doctor if any
of your prescription
medications
could
interact badly with
acetaminophen.

Non-prescription
medicines available
over the counter are
generally safe when
taken as directed on
the bottle. But that
doesnt mean that
theyre safe in any
amount.
About 10 years ago,
the sister of a close
colleague was having
terrible back pain and
took 8,000 mg per
day of acetaminophen
for several days. It
caused liver failure,
from which she died.
Respect the directions
on all over-the-counter
medicines. They are
there for a reason.

toddlers and other things her husband
could manage while were talking.
When this happens I say, I can tell
youre tied up. Can we talk later when
things settle down? Her reply: We
can talk now. Things are ALWAYS
crazy around here.
As it stands, we speak only a few
times a year, and Id like her undivided
attention. I have tried bringing this up
a number of times, but she feels life
doesnt stand still for anyone.
Is it too much to ask for 30 minutes,
three times a year? We live several
states apart, so having a face-to-face
isnt an option. Any help would be
appreciated, because Im hurt. --

Groups claim insurance discrimination in new forms


BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
Associated Press

WASHINGTON Ending insurance discrimination against the sick was a central goal
of the nations health care overhaul, but leading patient groups say that promise is being
undermined by new barriers from insurers.
The insurance industry responds that critics are confusing legitimate cost-control with
bias. Some state regulators, however, say
theres reason to be concerned about policies
that shift costs to patients and narrow their
choices of hospitals and doctors.
With open enrollment for 2015 three months
away, the Obama administration is being
pressed to enforce the Affordable Care Acts
anti-discrimination provisions. Some regulations have been issued; others are pending
after more than four years.
More than 300 patient advocacy groups
recently wrote Health and Human Services
Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell to complain about some insurer tactics that are
highly discriminatory against patients with
chronic health conditions and may violate
the (laws) nondiscrimination provisions.
Among the groups were the AIDS Institute,
the American Lung Association, Easter Seals,
the Epilepsy Foundation, the Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society, the National Alliance
on Mental Illness, the National Kidney
Foundation and United Cerebral Palsy. All
supported the law.
Coverage of expensive drugs tops their
concerns.
The advocates also say they are disappointed by how difficult its proved for con-

Archive

sumers to get a full picture of plans sold on


the new insurance exchanges. Digging is often
required to learn crucial details such as drugs
covered, exact copayments and which doctors
and hospitals are in the network.
Washington states insurance commissioner, Mike Kreidler, said there is no question
that discrimination is creeping back. The
question is whether we are catching it or not,
added Kreidler, a Democrat.
Kansas commissioner, Sandy Praeger, a
Republican, said the jury is out on whether
some insurers are back to shunning the sick.
Nonetheless, Praeger said the administration
needs to take a strong stand.
They ought to make it very clear that if
there is any kind of discrimination against
people with chronic conditions, there will
be enforcement action, Praeger said. The
whole goal here was to use the private insurance market to create a system that provides
health insurance for all Americans.
The Obama administration turned down
interview requests.
An HHS spokeswoman said the department
is preparing a formal response to the advocates
and stressed that todays level of consumer
protection is far superior to what existed
before President Barack Obamas law, when
an insurance company could use any existing
medical condition to deny coverage.
The law also takes away some of the
motivation insurers have for chasing healthy
patients. Those attracting a healthy population
must pay into a pool that will reimburse plans
with a higher share of patients with health
problems. But that backstop is under attack
from congressional Republicans as an insurer

took the nickname Papa
after his platoon leader he met

I have three Purple Hearts,

Giffin said the companys
job is to serve Vietnam vets
and to thank them. He said
they have gained many, many

We have the wives and

sharing their photos and stories with us, Giffin said.
Some of the veterans
come with their family members and share stories with
us. The veterans get comfortable enough with our group,
that they share accounts of
the war the family members
have never heard, Defeyer
detailed. Some of the vets
have a hard time. We talk with
them and help them heal.
All of the guys in the com-

BY BRUCE SCHREINER
Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. In a business


where patience is part of the process,
Kentucky bourbon makers are making
a big bet by stashing away their largest
stockpiles in more than a generation.
To put it in bartenders lingo: Distillers
are putting up the tab for millions of
rounds of bourbon years before they
are even ordered. The production poses
an inherent risk, but hitting the moment
right a big supply meshing with big
demand could mean a serious payday
for companies big and small.
Missing the target would leave bourbon makers awash with supply and leave
future production in question, particularly for craft distilleries that have seen a
surge in popularity.
People keep asking us, When will
the bubble burst? said Eric Gregory,
president of the Kentucky Distillers
Association.
For most in the business, the answer is
not anytime soon.
Large companies are banking on continued international demand from places
such as China and a culture in the U.S.
that currently has a taste for bourbon,
which has to be aged at least two years in
new charred oak barrels.
We are busier than I ever could have
imagined, said Chris Morris, master distiller at Brown-Forman Corp., producer
of Woodford Reserve and Old Forester
bourbons.
Last year, Kentucky distilleries filled
1.2 million barrels of bourbon the most
since 1970, according to the Kentucky
Distillers Association. Inventory has
topped 5 million barrels for the first time

since 1977, the group said.


Production has surged by more than
150 percent in the past 15 years in
Kentucky home to 95 percent of the
worlds bourbon production.
For many, many years, bourbon
was considered a Southern gentlemans
drink, said Jimmy Russell, the longtime
master distiller at Wild Turkey. Now
bourbons become a worldwide drink.
The last time the industry spiked production in the 1970s, distillers ended
up with a glut when demand went in a
tailspin.
Back then, the industry had grown
stale and many consumers switched allegiance to vodka, Scotch and other spirits.
You had the same old brands, you
were pretty much on autopilot, Morris
said.
Now, distillers are constantly dabbling
with premium small-batch offerings or
putting new twists on recipes and flavors
and companies are looking to real-time
data from the digital world.
Sales trends and developments are
tracked in markets worldwide. The numbers are crunched to make the best educated estimate of future consumer demand
for a product that takes years to mature.
Straight bourbon whiskey ages a minimum of two years, though the average
maturity is four years or older. Many
popular super-premium brands age six
years or longer, which are the toughest
to stock in bars, restaurants and liquor
stores.
Bourbon as a category is on fire,
said Bill Thomas, a Washington, D.C.,
bar owner whose establishments include
Jack Rose Dining Saloon. Every week,
theres stuff thats out of stock.
Expansions have occurred at Jim

Beam, Evan Williams, Wild Turkey,


Makers Mark, Buffalo Trace and
Woodford Reserve. Global liquor giant
Diageo PLC recently announced plans
to build a new distillery in Kentucky.
Microdistilleries are getting a foothold
in the state.
Every drop of bourbon is precious for
producers trying to keep up with demand.
If they had more, they could sell it
right now, said Fred Noe, Jim Beams
master distiller and descendant of Jacob
Beam, who set up his first Kentucky still
in 1795.
The disparity between supply and
demand has put extra pressure on the
distilleries.
In early 2013, Makers Mark caused
a backlash when it announced it was
cutting the amount of alcohol in each
bottle to stretch its whiskey supplies. The
brand known for its red wax seal quickly
scrapped the idea.
In the U.S., total revenues for bourbon
and Tennessee whiskey reached $2.4
billion last year, a 10.2 percent increase,
according to the Distilled Spirits Council.
Volume was up nearly 7 percent to 18
million cases, it said.
The two spirits claimed 34 percent of
the U.S. whiskey market in 2013, putting
it ahead of the Canadian, Scotch, blended
and Irish whiskey categories.
The industry lumps bourbon and
Tennessee whiskey into one category.
Both are produced in the same way
with similar ingredients, but Tennessee
whiskeys are charcoal mellowed before
going into the barrel to age, while bourbon isnt.
Exports of bourbon and Tennessee
whiskey surpassed $1 billion for the first
time ever in 2013, the council said.

Peek into brain shows how kids learn math skills


BY LAURAN
NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer

WASHINGTON

Sometime in elementary
school, you quit counting
your fingers and just know
the answer. Now scientists
have put youngsters into brain
scanners to find out why, and
watched how the brain reorganizes itself as kids learn
math.
The take-home advice:
drilling your kids on simple
addition and multiplication
may pay off.
Experience really does
matter, said Dr. Kathy Mann
Koepke of the National
Institutes of Health, which
funded the research.
Healthy children start
making that switch between
counting to whats called
fact retrieval when theyre 8
years old to 9 years old, when
theyre still working on fundamental addition and subtraction. How well kids make
that shift to memory-based
problem-solving is known to
predict their ultimate math
achievement.
Those who fall behind are
impairing or slowing down
their math learning later on,
Mann Koepke said.

advanced training and is the only physician in a
10-county area who is Board Certified in the American
Board of Nutrition and Biliary and Pancreatic Diseases.

she tried to fill her prescription the pharmacy


wanted $2,000, more than she could afford.
Insurance companies are basically singling
out certain conditions by placing some medications on high-cost tiers, said Hill. That is
pretty blatant discrimination in my mind.
Hill, a biking advocate from the Sacramento
area, has been able to get her medication
through the manufacturers patient assistance
program.
The insurance industry trade group
Americas Health Insurance Plans says theres
no discrimination because patients have many
options on the insurance exchanges. Gold and
platinum plans feature lower cost-sharing, but
have higher premiums. Standard silver plans
generally require patients to pay a greater
share of medical bills, but some have fairly
robust drug coverage.
There are plans on the exchanges that are
right for people who have these health conditions, said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for
the group.
For 2015, the administration says it will
identify plans that require unusually high
patient cost-sharing in states where Washington
is running the exchange. Insurers may get an
opportunity to make changes. Regulators will
collect and analyze data on insurers networks.
People who have high cost health conditions are still having a problem accessing
care, said law professor Timothy Jost of
Washington and Lee University in Virginia.
We are in the early stages of trying to figure out what the problems are, and to what
extent they are based on insurance company
discrimination, or inherent in the structure of
the program.

bailout.
Compounding the uncertainty is that
Washington and the states now share responsibility for policing health plans sold to individuals.
Although the federal government is running
insurance markets in 36 states, state regulators
are still in charge of consumer protection. A
few states refuse to enforce any aspect of the
law.
Kreidler said the federal government should

right now, he said.
Much of the concern is about coverage for
prescription drugs. Also worrisome are the
narrow networks of hospitals and doctors that
insurers are using to keep premiums down.
Healthy people generally shop for lower premiums, while people with health problems
look for access to specialists and the best
hospitals.
Before Obamas overhaul, insurance plans
sold on the individual market could exclude
prescription coverage. Now the debate is over
whats fair to charge patients.
Some plans are requiring patients to pay 30
percent or more for drugs that go for several
thousand dollars a month. HIV drugs, certain
cancer medications, and multiple sclerosis
drugs are among them.
Although the law sets an overall annual
limit on what patients are required to pay, the
initial medication cost can be a shock.
California resident Charis Hill has ankylosing spondylitis, a painful, progressive form

But why do some kids make


the transition easier than others?
To start finding out,
Stanford University researchers first peeked into the brains
of 28 children as they solved
a series of simple addition
problems inside a brain-scanning MRI machine.
No scribbling out the
answer: The 7- to 9-year-olds
saw a calculation three
plus four equals seven, for
example flash on a screen
and pushed a button to say
if the answer was right or
wrong. Scientists recorded
how quickly they responded and what regions of their
brain became active as they
did.
In a separate session, they
also tested the kids face to
face, watching if they moved
their lips or counted on their
fingers, for comparison with
the brain data.
The children were tested
twice, roughly a year apart.
As the kids got older, their
answers relied more on memory and became faster and
more accurate, and it showed
in the brain. There was less
activity in the prefrontal and
parietal regions associated
with counting and more in
the brains memory center, the
hippocampus, the researchers
reported Sunday in Nature
Neuroscience.
The hippocampus is sort of
like a relay station where new
memories come in shortterm working memory and
then can be sent elsewhere
for longer-term storage and
retrieval. Those hippocampal
connections increased with
the kids math performance.
The stronger the connections, the greater each individuals ability to retrieve facts
from memory, said Dr. Vinod
Menon, a psychiatry professor at Stanford and the studys
senior author.

But thats not the whole


story.
Next, Menons team put 20
adolescents and 20 adults into
the MRI machines and gave
them the same simple addition problems. It turns out that
adults dont use their memory-crunching hippocampus
in the same way. Instead of
using a lot of effort, retrieving
six plus four equals 10 from
long-term storage was almost
automatic, Menon said.
In other words, over time

the brain became increasingly


efficient at retrieving facts.
Think of it like a bumpy,
grassy field, NIHs Mann
Koepke explained. Walk over
the same spot enough and
a smooth, grass-free path
forms, making it easier to get
from start to end.
If your brain doesnt have
to work as hard on simple
math, it has more working
memory free to process the
